Big Shots Die at Dawn
"Kaoyaku akatsukini shisu"

Director: Kihachi Okamoto
Cast: Yz Kayama, Jun Tazaki, Yukiko Shimazaki

Jiro comes back to his hometown after a long work stint in Alaska. He soon learns that his father, the town's major, was murdered a year earlier, and in the meantime the yakuza gangs have taken over the reins of the place. Finding the killer of his father becomes his obsession.

An early Okamoto yakuza film, though it's not in the Underworld series (along with The Last Gunfight and The Big Boss) despite being alternatively known as "Death of the Boss." While Okamoto did not write this film and took on the project because he was assigned and "just doing [his] job" according to an interview with Chris Desjardins in Outlaw Masters of Japanese Film, he did express a general excitement about working in action cinema (which shows through in this film's energy.)
